Alternative Text For Images – EverWeb Widget

2 Comments EverWeb, Freebies, Widgets

imageThis is a simple widget that allows you to add alternative text for your images in EverWeb. If you are familiar with search engine optimization (SEO) then you know that alternative text can help to drive more traffic to your website. Alternative text gives Google and other search engines more information about the content on your website, specifically, your images. With a rise in popularity with image search engines, getting your images indexed can drive a significant amount of traffic to your website.

This widget will allow you to simply select your image and then add alternative text to it. This widget is available as a free download. Remember to double click on the .ewwdgt file to install the widget.

Alternative Text Tips: Describe the image as best as you can. Do not make the alternative text very long. Using the keywords that you are targeting on your page is a good idea.

Examples of bad alternative text: cool view of a mountain, our products, camera,

Examples of good alternative text: Grey clouds at the peak of Mount Everest, All natural spray bottle bathroom cleanser, Black vintage Polaroid camera from 1991.

    Note: using alt text for images is also an essential element of making documents / websites meet government accessibility standards. Well done making this widget available!!

    It appears that one is not permitted to select a Stroke setting for an image included on a site using this widget. Am I correct?
